PJammin® Press Release
Cherokee County Schools to Host Childhood Cancer Awareness Fundraiser
As one can imagine, cancer treatment is not a quick or easy process. For children with cancer, this process often lasts years. These children spend from weeks to months at a time in the hospital as they undergo chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, and other procedures. They are often unable to attend school and participate in many childhood activities. For a large portion of time during their treatment, children with cancer are usually in their pajamas.
As a way to raise money and childhood cancer awareness, all Cherokee County Schools are hosting “PJammin® For Kids With Cancer” on [September 26, 2018]. This event is a way for businesses and schools to show support by donating a minimum of $1 per participant in exchange for the ability to wear pajamas to school or work for a day. While this is a fun way to raise money, it’s also a symbolic way to show support for the children who have no choice about whether or not they have to be in their pajamas all the time.
All money raised will be donated toward the programs and services of The American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO), which has been providing comprehensive books and support materials to children with cancer of all ages since 1970. These books and materials are sources of information, empowerment, and hope, and they are given free to children and families across the country.
